STICKY BUNS

STICKY BUNS
Following my last post in which I mentioned the 'Sticky Bun' cafe which we visited during our recent BPC Dorset group weekend meet - I received a comment from Steve A in the USA requesting clarification on what exactly a sticky bun is. 
Steve wanted to know if it was anything like a Doughnut (Donut) to which I replied no, explaining that it was a currant bun covered in a very sticky white icing. 


Today I thought that it would be a good idea to go out and buy a couple of sticky buns...one for me and one for Steve...and post a picture on this blog so Steve could see exactly what 'his' sticky bun looks like. 
I don't know what the calorie content of these sticky little wonders is but I reckon that you would have to put in a good few miles on the bike to burn these babies off.!! 
Still Steve doesn't need any incentive to do that as he has just taken delivery of a new bike. 


I can't say that these buns are as good for you as they taste, in fact I think they are pretty destructive on your teeth.....the only people who benefit from the sale of these buns is the baker and your dentist. 
Anyway I will now be forced to eat both of these sticky buns, because if I was to send Steve his bun it would be stale by the time he received it......
Sorry Steve, but at least the thought was there.

Between 400 and 500 calories each!

Looks like they might be worth it on occasion.

Dr Atkins would NOT approve! They are more like our cinnamon rolls than donuts. Thanks, and I hope you enjoyed mine very much, as I would not have been allowed to eat it even had it not gotten stale and moldy on the voyage over here. I will have to consume an omelet tomorrow to return the favor. And now I know what a sticky bun really is!

With all that fat and high calories, on very few occasions I would say Jeff....

*Steve A*

*limom*

In Steve’s defense, “sticky buns” has a completely different connotation here in the States; some things get lost in translation.

As they say Neil, "Divided by a common language".

Looks good!! I would have no problem consuming one (or two) no matter the calories or whatever else might be said for them.

Well I must admit that I managed to eat both of them, with absolutely no feeling of guilt whatsoever.

I would say twenty miles of cycling before you can have one though......

You are so right....I was always told that guilt is a wasted emotion anyway..
